== Welcome to EngineY While originally designed to be a social networking framework allowing users to easily build a social network site, EngineY has become something much greater. It now has full Content Management capabilities and features similar to a full portal, such as the popular Java Portals like Liferay. EngineY is implemented in Ruby on Rails and is easy to customize and deploy as your own powerful and feature packed social media site. Empower users with their own blogs. Enhance collaboration with forums, groups and events. Let your users post Twitter-like status messages. Track all the activity on your site with a live activity stream. Build a custom client to access all of your social data using EngineY's RESTful API. == Getting Started To see an example of a running instance of EngineY, visit the Michigan Ruby Community at http://www.rubymi.org Currently the www.rubymi.org site is running on Dreamhost which is not an ideal host for Rails apps and thus has frequent outages. I apologize in advance for that. == Installation 1) EngineY requires the rmagick gem. To correctly install that gem along with the correct version of Imagemagick for your platform see this FAQ: http://rmagick.rubyforge.org/install-faq.html Generally you can just install the 'imagemagick' package using your favorite OS package manager. 2) Now use bundler to install the necessary Rubygems: bundle install 3) Edit config/database.yml to configure a local database for use with EngineY. 4) Run the following command to bootstrap the database: rake bootstrap This will create the database with the correct schema and populate it with data for a sample site. This will allow you to run the application and have a look around. You will be able to login with the following id and password: User ID: admin Password: admin After logging in as the Admin, you can go to the 'Manage' tab and click on the 'Settings' tab. From that page, you can set a theme for your site. For example, try setting the RubyMI theme to see an example of what a Ruby community site might look like. Getting Help/Support Any questions that you have about using EngineY or developing with EngineY should be posted to the EngineY Google Group http://groups.google.com/group/enginey.
